From scary Santa to bawling babies, we know you can relate to these photo fails

It’s that time of year again—holiday photo time. Whether you’ve made the annual trip to the mall to sit on Santa’s lap or decided to sport matching outfits for this year’s card, there’s no way to prepare for a meltdown. We know you have less-than-perfect photos, and we can’t wait to see them. Share your most hilarious holiday photo flops with Ashland Women’s Health using #AWHHolidayFail—because, hey, it’s the giving season, and we believe in the gift of laughter. (Plus, we can all relate to a photo session gone wrong.) Scroll on for some of our favorite photo fails we’ve stumbled upon:
